Greetings From West Texas
Collage Series, 2020

The collages that make up the Greetings from Texas series play off of pop cultural associations with the West,
colliding epic landscapes with images of resource extraction. Juxtaposing ready-made representations of Texas
to express the layered and contradictory cultural messages embedded at the intersection of Western films, the
extractive promise of wealth, the erasure of Indigenous peoples, and the natural splendor of the land.
